For my first card I started by stamping and heat embossing the three sizes of my favourite snowflake from the set. I then sponged distress ink all over in three different colours.
Next I stamped a snowflake and sentiment onto a piece of scrap white card and adhered it across the bottom.
Stamps: Uniko, Stunning snowflakes
Inks: Ranger Distress, mermaid lagoon, wilted violet; SU, real red; Versamark + Stampendous clear embossing powder
My second card features the other two snowflake designs included in this set and I combined them with the Big & Bold Snow set that mixes and matches so well.
I made a diagonal fall from top to bottom to frame the sentiment which I stamped straight across the middle. A scattering of sequins just finished it all off a treat.
Stamps: Uniko, Stunning snowflakes & Big & Bold Snow
Inks: SU, night of navy, pool party; Memento, pear tart
Sequins from my stash
My final card is just so CAS and really allows the beauty of the snowflake shine out.
And I couldn't resist making a couple more of this design using different colours.
Stamps: Uniko, Stunning Snowflakes
Inks: Hero Arts Ombre, pool to navu & pink to red; Memento, grape jelly
